Thread of Gold


“Designs for Candlesticks,” The Woodworker magazine, January 1938

“Some generations have suffered more than the others, and it may be that we erred in thinking we had put all that behind us. But we shall face the future with braver hearts and a better hope if we take each day as it comes to us, cherishing the thread of gold which is always there among the homespun, keeping the sharp new vision which can look on life with loving eyes and find in it manifold good.”

Charles Hayward, The Woodworker magazine, 1938

  3. Kara, Thank you for Hayward’s beautiful words. They were written in 1938 at the very beginning of World War II.
